Brain Injury Safety Tips

Car and Booster Seats – Always using age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats that are properly installed.

Helmets – Making sure your child always wears the right helmet for their activity and that it fits correctly. Wearing a helmet is a must to help reduce the risk of a serious brain injury or skull fracture. However, helmets are not designed to prevent concussions. There is no “concussion-proof” helmet.

Stair Gates – Using gates at the top and bottom of stairs to prevent serious falls in infants and toddlers.
